    A couple of things in there, I did not know about, and therefore found quite interesting.

    Damn Denver blizzards, cost us McDyess and cost us a shot at the longest winning streak in history.

    This may be new news to some of you, but to myself and others here who have followed the suns for years, this is old news.

    I would guess its pretty much old news to everybody. Still interesting though and I love the part of Issel making sure Kidd, MCCloud, and Chapman couldn't get in the arena to change things....

    There wasn't anything about the double dealing by his agent back in the day nor his friction with coach Ainge, but it seems accurate as far as it goes.

    I remember that whole year being ticked for Ainge sitting McDyess in the fourth quarters - there sure wasn't anything happening on the court that justified him doing that. You could tell from Dice's demeanor on the bench he hated it. By the end of the season I and others were predicting that McDyess wouldn't return for that very reason.
